Pint-sized Sinatra wows BGT judges

It’s young blue eyes – 'Britain’s Got Talent' hopeful Robbie Firmin is a pint-sized Frank Sinatra.

It’s young blue eyes – 'Britain’s Got Talent' hopeful Robbie Firmin is a pint-sized Frank Sinatra.

The seven-year-old wowed the judges in last night’s edition of the ITV1 show, performing his version of the Sinatra classic 'My Way'.

And it looks like he is a long way from facing his final curtain after being heaped with praise by the judging panel.

The youngster from Chatham in Kent donned a suit and hat to complete his transformation into Sinatra – famed for songs such as 'You Make Me Feel So Young'.

He also tried to turn matchmaker by telling audition judge Louis Walsh his aunt is looking for a new boyfriend.

“I think she would want you to be it,” he tells Walsh, before inviting his aunt on stage.

Young talent Firmin seemed to meet the judges’ approval with his performance.

Amanda Holden told him: “You were fantastic, it was fabulous.”

And fellow panellist Michael McIntyre said: “Robbie, I thought that was just brilliant, it had everything – you toyed with the audience, they were up, they were down, they were swaying. Robbie you’re a star.”
